First Video Up and Running!

I was able to find the time to record and post up a video to YouTube finally. It’s probably about what one would think a first video by someone with no really innate talent might be like. I found I could not just start talking… it just did not work. So I wrote a couple of paragraphs to start myself off.

Because of my admiration of the orderly I began with the training mission of one of my favorite games. It’s dead dull. It really is. The only thing that could have made it interesting would have been some sparkling, insightful commentary. Unfortunately; none was to be had. Not from me at any rate.

Let’s see, other sins: I completely lost my train of thought at one point. Too many ‘um’s. I think the game volume might be too loud in the recording too.

I hope to give it another go really soon. To kind of gain some momentum, having at leas been successful at creating a video and getting it up on YouTube, regardless of actual entertainment value or potential for popularity.

Anyone out there in the Aether with some advice for a newling like me, give a comment. Tell to me your thoughts.

Greetings and Felicitations!

Who am I? What is my purpose here?

Pretty hefty questions. How best to answer?

I am no one. I could be anyone. To some people, I guess I am someone. For the most part though, I am no one.

If the word average had a ‘T’ in it that would be me. Average to a ‘T’.

To you, I hope to be Mabd, The Midnight Mama, mother of five, gaming since I can remember and chronically spending too much time in my own head for anyone else’s good. My kids ranging in age from 7 months to 15 years old, three boys and two girls. I live on the ass side of somewhere and the front side of nowhere… strategically positioned to at once not worry about anyone seeing when the husband decides to take a piss off the back porch but close enough to ‘civilization’ to be glad I’m not there more often in 20 minutes.

I am up often in the middle of the night… the baby was restless and now, so too, am I. Someone lost their stuffty and we had to mount a search and rescue effort at 2 am. Or, sometimes it is just the only time when all is still and quiet and I have better than a 15% chance of making it through a Youtube video or kicking The Bunker’s ass without being interrupted.

So, I have decided to share my dead of night antics to invite you to share my small thoughts in the small hours and otherwise commemorate my life after midnight.
